Today's Predictions for Nantes vs Angers

Nantes need to win and wait for favours elsewhere to ensure they stay in Ligue 1 on the final day of the campaign in France. Read our top Nantes vs Angers predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Both Teams to Score

Nantes face a nail-biting final day in France on Saturday when their top flight destiny won’t be entirely in their own hands. Nantes need a win against Angers alongside a defeat for Auxerre in their last game against Lens to stay up and Les Canaris pursuit of that crucial victory should ensure their clash with Angers isn’t short on drama. 100% of the visitor’s last seven matches in Ligue 1 have featured goals at both ends, and the chances of a repeat outcome this weekend feel high when these two porous defences clash.

Over 2.5 Goals

With so much riding on Saturday’s result at the Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau, we expect Nantes to go for the jugular from the first whistle against Angers, though that should leave gaps at the back for the visitors to exploit and the goals could flow as a result. 100% of Angers’ last seven league assignments have produced over 2.5 goals and all the ingredients seem to be in place for another high-octane tussle here. The second entry in our Nantes vs Angers predictions forecasts goals for that reason.

Nantes vs Angers Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Nantes vs Angers lineups and team news for Saturday’s Ligue 1 game below.

Nantes

Andy Delort is out injured with a thigh problem, though Nantes have few injury issues to contend with elsewhere. Nantes lost 2-1 at Lille last time out after they conceded two second-half penalties. Les Canaries need everything to go their way to stay up this weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Nantes: Lafont – Victor, Girotto, Castelletto, Traore – Coco, Chirivella, Moutoussamy – Blas, Merlin, Ganago

Angers

Angers could be without the services of Nabil Bentaleb, Souleyman Doumbia, Faouzi Ghoulam, Amine Salama, Ilyes Chetti, Ali Katta and Ulrick Eneme-Ella this weekend while attacker Ibrahima Niane is suspended and won't be involved. Angers have already been relegated.

Predicted Lineup for Angers: Fofana – Thioub, Valery, Houtondji, Bamba, Sabanovic – Abdelli, Mendy, Hunou – Niane, Sima

Player to Watch – Ludovic Blas

Nantes attacking midfielder Ludovic Blas has been collecting more cards than goals lately, though the 25-year-old has lodged 11 goal contributions overall in Ligue 1 this term (7G, 4A) and Les Canaris need him to rediscover his touch in the final third this weekend.

Blas hasn’t found the net in Ligue 1 since April (vs Monaco), though he did net Nantes’ consolation goal in the Coupe de France final against Toulouse and the schemer has a habit of producing on the biggest occasions.
